EwE - Shrimp Creole

It was my turn to pick for Eating with Ellie this week, and I chose Shrimp Creole.

I went seriously off piste with this recipe.  I found I had no onions, so I used leek.  I bought a yellow, not a green, capsicum.  I used Cajun seasoning as Creole seasoning is not a thing here, and Cajun sounded pretty close.  I also used frozen spinach instead of fresh baby spinach, as I used up all the baby spinach on something else, not realising that I needed it for this.

I really enjoyed this dish.  It had a bit of zing, with the Cajun seasoning and tabasco sauce, and tasted really good.  This is definitely one I'd make again.

To see what everyone else thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.

Great pick...we loved this. I liked how it was a healthy version, less fat and calories than the ones I have had before, so this will be new go-to for when I want to make this. Yours looks great and all your changes were in keeping with the recipe, fun to know they all work.

Thank you for choosing this. I found my husband going for thirds at 11 o'clock at night. You think he might just like it?

I made it with chicken and it was great.

Cajun = Creole seasoning. What brand do you have? I have a recipe for creole seasoning if you want it. It's what I use. This was a really good pick and so close to my grandfathers recipe who is from South Louisiana.
